Dairy farmers around Oregon are watching the closure of Mallorie's Dairy in Silverton. It's a farm that's been in business over half a century. Pete Kent, Executive Director of the Oregon Dairy Products Commission says, it's difficult to make a profit in the dairy industry. The cost of feed has increased more than 50%. Kent says some dairy farmers are doing better selling organic milk, which brings a higher price; but it also costs more to make. He says milk prices are rising, but it's going to be another difficult year.
